1929 ZEPHYR.jpg

Joseph Soper is probably best remembered for SATANITA, a cutter legendary for her speed - and a “fair turn of speed” is one of the properties noted by the yachting press of 1929 for this creation by Philip and Son from another of his designs. ZEPPHYR was moreover conceived as an able sea going cruiser and at 62 foot on deck she’s the perfect size for a family yacht of this vintage. In impressive condition and a considerable beauty, her forte is nevertheless in the sheer practicality of her layout, rig and accommodation – to which her ownership by the same family for more than 40 years is testament enough.
